| Muon anomalous magnetic moment due to the brane-stretching effect - Konosuke Sawa We investigate the contribution of extra dimensions to the muon anomalous magnetic moment by using an ADD-type 6-dimensional model. This approach analyzes the extent of the influence of classical brane fluctuations on the magnetic moment. When we consider that the brane fluctuations are static in time, they add new potential terms to the Schr{\"o}dinger equation through the induced vierbein. This paper shows that the brane fluctuation is responsible for the brane-stretching effect... Downloads: 20 | |

| Pulsars as gravitational wave detectors - George Hobbs Pulsar timing array projects are carrying out high precision observations of millisecond pulsars with the aim of detecting ultra-low frequency (~ 10^{-9} to 10^{-8} Hz) gravitational waves. We show how unambiguous detections of such waves can be obtained by identifying a signal that is correlated between the timing of different pulsars. Here we describe the ongoing observing projects, the expected sources of gravitational waves, the processing of the data and the implications of current results. Downloads: 46 | |

| Black universes with trapped ghosts - K. A. Bronnikov A black universe is a nonsingular black hole where, beyond the horizon, there is an expanding, asymptotically isotropic universe. Such models have been previously found as solutions of general relativity with a phantom scalar field as a source of gravity and, without phantoms, in a brane world of RS2 type. Here we construct examples of static, spherically symmetric black-universe solutions in general relativity with a minimally coupled scalar field \phi whose kinetic energy is negative in a rest...

| CPT Violation and Decoherence in Quantum Gravity - N. E. Mavromatos In these lectures I review, in as much pedagogical way as possible, various theoretical ideas and motivation for violation of CPT invariance in some models of Quantum Gravity, and discuss the relevant phenomenology.

In my opinion this seems to be the most likely scenario to be realised in Nature, should quantum gravity be responsible for the violation of thi... Downloads: 31 | |
